"Revolution In the Air"
November 13th, Community Church of Boston "Revolution In the Air: Lessons from the 1960s-80s Wave of Activism".
- In 1968, at the height of the war in Vietnam, the New York Times reported that nearly 3 million Americans thought a revolution was needed in this country, and polls showed that more college students identified with Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara than with any U.S. Presidential candidate that year.
- Please join area activists from different generations as we explore the lessons from the 1960s to the 1980s and their meaning for today. We urge you to come and be part of the conversation.
For more information, contact Mark Brenner - or Elly Leary.
